    You could save a lot of money on the GPU that is recommended here by getting a regular GTX 660 and not the Ti version. The non-Ti version of that card is about $60 cheaper, and the Ti version is only slightly better in performance. Benchmarks on games like Far Cry 3 and Battlefield 4 show that the Ti is only able to scrape by a few extra frames, not worth the higher price point at all.

    Go to pcpartpicker.com, easiest way to put together a pc and find great prices for parts. Even finds promo codes for you! You can also see other peoples builds and see what worked (or did not work) for them.

    I just built this computer. http://stickystatic.com/build-a-gaming-computer.php I tried the Battlefield 4 BETA and it looked like CRAP. Is that because the Beta was in crap mode? Better graphics on final release?

    Here's a build I put together. The dual graphics cards in there will perform better than the R9 290x for less. The total overall cost for the build (without OS or any peripherals) is $964. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/zachhile/saved/3vin

    So I'm thinking about getting my first gaming PC this Christmas, so I was wondering if there are any compatibility issues. For example, I want the NVIDEA GTX 760 instead of the ASUS card in the article. Would this card still work with the CPU and Motherboard that are shown? Sorry if it's a dumb question.
  • SilkOrganic - October 15, 2013 8:24 p.m.

    There is no compatibility issues if you install that card however, if you want to run 2 nVidia cards in the future the motherboard must be sli compatible. Email me if you have further questions: andeeswork@gmail.com

    Wait a minute... I did some calc work, this turns out to be $1422 WITHOUT keyboard, mouse, and headset.
  • I_Like_PI - October 6, 2013 7:01 p.m.

    Everything after the OS was optional, you don't NEED a new keyboard, monitor, mouse, etc. Those are all just nice extras.
  • Gooop - October 13, 2013 3:02 p.m.

    Oh, didn't realize that (I'm a PC building noob) I thought the sound card and aftermarket fan weren't optional.
  • Kinnolo - September 25, 2013 8:20 a.m.

    Why would I buy an i5, quad core for that much? You can get a Phenom FX 8 core for less at NewEgg. Not only that, for $99 you can get a 2TB 7200 RPM 6GB/s HDD. You can also get a GTX 760 for less than the 660ti. According to GPU boss the 760 outperforms the 660ti in gaming and compute performance. The 760 has a higher clock speed, higher memory bandwidth, uses less power and has a higher turbo clock speed.

    I've got an ancient desktop and a really crappy laptop and was wondering if anybody knows how to convert them. If anybody responds I'll put up their specs, thanks for the help!
  • Kinnolo - September 26, 2013 6:44 p.m.

    First question, what kind of tower is your desktop? If it's a micro just scrap it and start anew.
  • nachowarrior - September 5, 2013 11:37 a.m.

    First problem... Never install an OS on a high density hard disk. It's asking for corruption and bad sectors. Second problem. Upgrades section: An IPS panel should never be used for gaming as the response time is ungodly slow. A 120hz+ tn panel or dlp projector setup is best if you don't want to go back to a CRT. Other than that, an 80+ efficiency psu is worth the cost in power savings over the life of the machine. :D

    Please Help! I don't know how to start building this.
  • jh4911 - July 18, 2013 7:58 a.m.

    I've recently upgraded my laptop (desktop isn't really an option as I'm travelling alot) and my advice to anyone thinking of going for a gaming laptop is cooling. Make sure your laptop has at least two large cooling vents on the back or side to keep the CPU and GPU cool, overheating can be a serious issue on a laptop not designed for gaming. I don't mind spending quite a lot of money since I use it for work and I hope to keep it for at least 5 years, in terms of money for hours spend enjoying it - it really makes sense. Finally it's worth going to custom builders (smallish in size companies), shop around and look for reviews your investing a lot a money and passion and you should spend a good amount of time before settling. My laptop: I7 (mobile) 4700QM Nividia Geforce GTX 780M 16Gb DDR3 1600MHz (Corsair vengeance) 500Gb HDD (I intend to use external back-ups) Gamut display (a bit more expensive but I really notice the difference) Oh and if going custom ALWAYS upgrade the thermal compound. A brief description of my laptop and will happily offer my experience of buying laptops if anyone wants it.
  • TheRubicon - July 19, 2013 12:32 p.m.

    What kind of laptop do you have? I'm looking to get a gaming laptop, but I don't know which one to go for. Thank you.
